Misleading headline (and bill name) of the year.

The Chronicle published an AP story that touted "House votes to make unions easier to form" and supposedly the bill does this by removing the ability of a employer to require a secret ballot of workers as to whether they want to be unionized or not. Now a secret ballot is just that, Secret. What is really galling is that they are calling this the "Employee Free Choice Act". there is nothing here about assuring an employee's freedom of choice, it is all about REMOVING the freedom to chose whether they want to unionize or not. If this passes, it would only take one or two people to force every employee there to join the union. That is blackmail. That is wrong. I urge the Senate to kill this.
